VB 6.0 Interface problem

Happy New Year All!

I've been having a bit of a problem with the VB IDE as of late.  Since one dev session I had a while ago I haven't been able to control the window that displays a module in my program.  The title bar some how got stuck way up at the top of the screen *behind* the menu bar.  No matter what I do I can't get a hold of the title bar of the module window and therefore I can't maximize it or otherwise control it.  How can I change the position of that window or reset the positions of the windows in the project?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Here's just a suggestion...

1. Click in the module window
2. Alt -  (to access the module window's menu)
3. Choose 'Move'
4. Move the window with the arrow keys

Check the directory where you have your project file (the one with .vbp). There you will find a file with the same name but with the .vbw extension, this file explains where all the forms, modules etc are positioned, their sizes etc are to put in the IDE. You can remove this file, and no form, modules etc will be open in the IDE.

When I click in the module window and hit the ALT key it only enables the main IDE menu.

Please reject the answer I gave, Ture's solution will work just fine.
Hold down the ALT key and press the - (minus) key, then the down arrow and enter.. now use your direction keys to position the forms.
